Default Bluebird Jet engined Record speed run boat getting rebuilt

So, the daughter of Donald Cambell donated her fathers record setting Speed boat the Bluebird K7. A boat that sat at the bottom of a lake after crashing. They are now rebuilding the boat, and returning it to operational status. I really hope they aren't going to attempt to run it at speeds that killed the original pilot.

Safety and design have come a LONG way since then, and while I'm okay with it being rebuilt for show/exhibition purposes, I don't think anyone should attempt to hit 300mph with this thing. I think its monumentally stupid actually.

Restore it, bring it as exhibition/history piece. But don't push its limits.

that boat crashed so similarly eerily to a lot of the go fast boats that have claimed lives in recent years.

watch how similarly this outerlimits crashed a few years back - the ceo/founder of the boat company was driving, someone else on throttles, owner guy passed away a few days later from his injuries.

blow over is getting to be a common thing with this crazy speeds and tunnel boats, they are built to pack air in the tunnel to create lift like a plane, so theres less drag on the hull from the water, the speeds some of these boats cruise at is crazy
